An Art show with paintings by Pixel Wizards entitled #Strangelings featuring local game & technology artists

WHEN? (feel free to invite your friends!)
Opening Reception - October 24th - 6:30pm to 8:30pm
Show Runs from October 17 – November 10, 2013

WHERE?
Art Gallery of Greater Victoria (Massey Gallery)
- 1040 Moss Street

DETAILS:
This show features paintings by three artists who have made professional careers as Art Directors in the game and technology industry. Creatives working in tech are often excluded by their fine art cohorts, due to their association with digital media.

Many people don't realize concept development often begins in traditional media - hand drawing, painting, pastels, and photography. In this show, you'll see the creativity and skill that opens up our story worlds, and give form to the visions that drive a digital industry.

Going analogue, these pixel wizards use paint and canvas to highlight their talents beyond software programs.

#Strangelings weave the art and tech communities together.

Note: There may be an admission charge - Paid bar

    The bad news is that I wasn't able to make it out to the opening. The good news is that it was in part due to my recording a new episode of LevelUp Radio! I hope everyone who made it out had a good time.

    Unfortunately I got carried away with work and completely gapped out and missed the show. Regrets.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
